In my book I write about how the American kitchen has benefited from the kindness of neighbors, and strangers, over the years. In an attempt to continue that tradition I am making donations to local food banks in the cities where book-signing events for "The Warmest Room in the House" are taking place. Below I am listing two upcoming signings, along with a link to the charitable organization I've chosen as the benefit in each city. Statistics show one in two children is at risk for hunger in the Washington, DC area, and one in five children facing similar hardships in the Maryland and Virginia suburbs. Please share what you can.
Please help in anyway you can, and I hope to see you at the signings below!
Saturday January 26th, The Smithsonian, Washington, DC at 2 PM. Signing for "The Warmest Room In The House." A portion of the proceeds will benefit Capital Area Food Bank. Please visit their site at www.CapitalAreaFoodBank.org .
Sunday February 10th, Elliott Bay Book Company, Seattle, WA at 2 PM. Another signing and reading from "The Warmest Room In The House," with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Rotary First Harvest. Visit them online at www.FirstHarvest.org.
